Several customers of the Sprint telecommunications company reported that they had access to the personal information of other subscribers. In particular, in their accounts, users observed other people’s names and phone numbers, as well as details of calls and SMS messages.
Subscribers who discovered a strange bug immediately reported the problem to the telecom operator. Sprint representatives confirmed the problem, stating that they received several calls from users concerned about the same circumstances.
According to Sprint customers, in two hours they managed to fix 22 telephone numbers belonging to complete strangers.
At the moment, it is not known how this is a large-scale problem, but many users are already complaining on Twitter about a strange leak of information.
